Windows 7: How do I enable my touchpad while using my keyboard?

How do I enable my touchpad while using my keyboard?

Hi all, I'm new to sevenforums, so I'm sorry if this is not the right place for this question. Basically, I just got a new laptop and started doing a little gaming (KOTOR and Battlefront II), the only problem is those games use awsd to move and the touchpad to look around and I can't use the touchpad while using the keyboard. Is there any way to enable touchpad use while using the keyboard? And an external mouse would do no good as I have no where to put it.

There is a option in the touchpad settings called "palm check" that disables touchpad input while typing. Disable it, and you should be all set.

You should be able to enable/ disable the touch pad from the control panel (start, control panel, touch pad (or similar name).....
